do you think it's a good idea to have a set of 19" M6 replica + winter tires?

I always wanted to get 18" or 19" M6 replica wheels.. but didn't have a chance but I do have enough cash to buy them now...

so my question is.. do you think it's a good idea to run on snow with 19" snow tires??

now I am running 16" snow tires with stock wheels and I am leaving canada next summer so... want to enjoy 19" wheel as long as possible.

I say no point. No one cares what your car looks like in winter. If you're leaving in a few months, then there's even less point. Save your money.

I'm sure they do for a hefty premium.

Nope, the bigger the rim the wider it usually is. Wide = bad for traction on snow/ice.

I dont believe its such a good idea .. the larger the wheel size plus the greater chance of snow getting stuck inside the rim = heavy vibrations to the steering wheel because the balance will be off.

bad idea
chicks won't think your cool when your in a guard rail or a ditch because you will have 245 width snow tires

Another "no" vote.... if you're not going to be taking advantage of them in the summer, I don't see the point of making them a winter rim. Would be more trouble than it's worth, and would only cost you lots of money needlessly.

Less sidewall = less snow traction.

225/50/16 has more grip than 225/45/17, both of which have way more than 225/35/19.

Don't do it. I get snow and ice in my 20's on my f150. You have to thaw it out every time you drive through deep snow.

We personally just make 4 models in a 19" and they are very limited.

Edit: and there is only 6 sizes available (sorry had to check to be sure..lol.)
